What is ASTM A352?ASTM A352 is a Specification for Steel Castings, Ferritic and Martensitic, for Pressure-Containing Parts, Suitable for Low-Temperature Service.
ScopeThis specification covers steel castings for valves, flanges, fittings, and other pressure-containing parts intended primarily for low-temperature service.
Ok let's start with ASTM A352 chemical composition.

Learn more about density.
Elastic Modulus190 GPa (27557 ksi) - 210GPa (30458 ksi).
Learn more about the Elastic Modulus.
Poisson's Ratio0.27 – 0.30.
Learn more about the poisson ratio.
Allowable StressDepends on the project (And its factor of safety).
Learn more about the what is allowable stress.
My Material's RankWhile engineers will often look for the cheapest material they can use, I took a different approach to material's selection to help newbie students.
I ranked materials according to their yield strengths and ASTM A352 currently ranks 93 in my yield strength index. This means there are other 92 materials that are more resistant.
Note: I've analysed 134 materials in order to create an yield strength index. Check my astm material's comparison post for more details.

CitationWhen you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.
That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.
To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:
Luz, Gelson. ASTM A352 Properties (Chem., Mech. & Rankings). Materials Blog. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>
Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
